can you speak a second language?

Post by Yesm » Tue Oct 22, 2019 1:26 pm

Is there anyone on here who can speak a language other than their original one? I started trying to learn German when I entered college at age 43. Nuff said about that--it was a disaster. Started too late, I guess, and the way they teach "foreign" language (in my college, at least), they say that beginning language learners should have "no prior experience with the language." then they start jabbering in the target language from the very first day in class. I ask you? In any case, did you grow up in a bilingual household? Did you pick up another language at home? Or did you learn in school? In school, did you just take foreign language because you had to? From what age, what grade? Are you gifted in learning other languages? I heard a theory that if someone is brilliant in one subject, they will be brilliant in all subjects (I wish!). Do you actually enjoy learning other languages? Just would be curious.
